Eny EM95 Android Mini PC Runs Android 5.1 on Amlogic S905 Processor

Amlogic S905 is the first 64-bit ARM processor by Amlogic, and comes with four ARM Cortex A53 cores coupled with a Mali-450MP GPU, with S912 to follow later with the same CPU cores, but more powerful Mali-T7xx GPU. With Acemax G9C we already have one company working on an Amlogic S905 TV box, but Eny Technology just informed me they are about to launch two models based on Amlogic armv8 processor: EM95-MXQ, which looks exactly like G9C, and EM95 with a different casing, but very similar specs.

Pricing is not available publicly yet, but that mean we should soon have affordable 4K Android media players supporting 2160p @ 60 Hz. You can visit EM95 product page if you want to contact the company to order in quantities.

Good point.
Most people only look at the top photos but don’t realize the board can’t fit inside.

The device has no heatsink, which is a must for a TV box and probably will only get 1 firmware update before ENY jumps to a new device & chipset again, completely abandoning their older devices.

Oops.. well spotted. That board must be for EM95-MXQ (Post now edited), and I’ve asked them if they have a picture of EM95 PCBA.

Yeah, my contact at AMLogic says this board is designed as prototype for Alibaba Video service for China market, so probably ENY as Acemax trying to get attention and customers by releasing non-existing photos. I will try to get sample of S905 board from Alibaba next week.

Firmware glitches and non existent support plague these devices, hell after 3 years the China STB manufacturers still haven’t even got OTA updates working properly.

Thanks but no thanks.

Rockchip retailers like Nagrace/UGOOS have OTA updates for their TV Boxes.
For other Chinese chip manufacturers like AMLogic, Allwinner, nothing.

Doesn’t Pivos, MINIX, and Matricom have OTA updates for their Amlogic devices?

I know at least MINIX have Amlogic devices and better support than most today.

WeTek is another that offer OTA updates and great support for its WekTek Play which it too is an Amlogic based device.

Kodi/XBMC support is also better on Amlogic then on any other ARM SoCs

Wonder if the Amlogic S905 & S912 SoCs will support 10-bit VP9?

Do they even support 10-bit HEVC? Previous SoCs was 8-bit only.

Yes, 10-bit HEVC is supported on S905/S912.

When I try update the system. It fails and tell me “Check Failed! Check Your OTA Server Argent”

Where do I find the OTA Server Agent?

Well simply do manual update, some time is much better than the one supplied by seller
If you get the right software you will get and OTA working.
Most5 of the times they just changing the housing box
